Workflow and Expandabilty

Workflow

Every time clients sign in with their account using the client endpoint, their user profile is securely fetched. Depending on the user profile, the interface builder creates a personalized user interface and sends it back to the client. This interface contains a personalized set of options for content conversion.

Figure 1 shows an example for a user interface of the framework, containing different options for conversion. Once such an option is triggered, a request is sent to the matched engine in the cloud which processes the request. Finally the result is sent back to the client and rendered directly in the webpage.

Expandability

EasyReading is component based, and external developers will be able to contribute to the framwork with new:

  • Engines
  • Userinterfaces
  • Renderers of engine/conversion results

As all the EasyReading framwork is open source, companies and research faculties will also be able to set up their own private version of the framework or add a new conversion engine to the existing system.
